Malaysian police and MP Mu SochuA take actions over the death of a Cambodian maid

By Khmerization
On 23rd July, Khmerization has received a mayday email from a concerned Malaysian national alerting about the death (murder?) of a Cambodian maid in Malaysia. The email was published and sent to more than 400 people, including the Malaysian Embassy, the Royal Malaysian Police and the Cambodian Embassy in Malaysia. The English-language Phnom Penh Post has also reported about the girls’ death.

MP Mu Sochua (pictured), one of the receivers of Khmerization’s email, has responded positively by promising to pester the Malaysian authority until she get the answer. “In my capacity as MP, I have and will bring to the immediate attention of the Malaysian embassy in Cambodia the issue of Cambodian workers working in Malaysia, in particular the safety and security of women working as domestic workers”, she said.

She also thanked Khmerization for circulating the news about this case. “I wish to thank Khmerization for circulating the news. The case reported in the past, was successfully resolved, thanks to your input”, added her email.

In a follow up email, Mu Sochua had promised to do all she can to get an answer about the girl’s death. “I called the Malaysian Embassy yesterday. No reply but my letter will follow. I will surely get to speak to an official. A letter to the govt. is also on the way”, she said in an email to Khmerization.

She also informed Khmerization that local NGOs are taking up the case further. “Local NGO spoke to the aunt of the victim who claims she was 19 year-old. The family wants to retract their consent to have the body cremated in Malaysia” added her email.

Khmerization is happy to say that the Royal Malaysian Police has also promised to take further action on the case after it received an email alert from Khmerization. “Thank you for your email. Further action will be taken as soon as possible. Thank you”, said a public relation officer of the Royal Malaysian Police through an email to Khmerization.
